When fans heard a Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers movie would come to Disney+, no one expected them to take a turn into a world reminiscent of Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis’ Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Walt Disney Studios plans to bring the Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers characters to the streaming service in a hybrid CGI and live-action film with John Mulaney and Andy Samberg as the titular chipmunks. While fans of the classic 90s Disney show might have hoped for a more classic reboot, the fresh take might bring new fans to the Chip’ n Dale fan club.
‘Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers’ seems to take place in a world similar to ‘Who Frame Roger Rabbit’
